Works by Women

Supporting creative work by women

Shall We Dance

If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of New York City, a trip to the Philly Fringe and Live Arts Festival may be in order.  Running September 3 through 18 in the City of Brotherly Love, the two festivals — one curated, the other an artistic free-for-all — take over the city and offer a chance to see a diverse array of work, particularly work by women.  Live Arts Festival has commissioned new pieces from 8 choreographers, six of them women (Daniele Strawmyre, Eun Jung Choi, Megan Mazarick, Meg Foley, Olive Prince and Shavon Norris).  The festival is also presenting work by Lucinda Childs.  In the Philly Fringe, two plays by Sarah Ruhl (4.48 Psychosis and Phaedra’s Love) and a play by Sheila Callaghan (That Pretty Pretty; or, The Rape Play) join new work, including An Irreverent Journey from Eggbeaters to Vibrators by Beverly Dale and Yes to Live; Yes to Love by Dette Glashouwer.
